New Battle of New Orleans
by Chuck Redden

lyrics

in twenty oh five, katrina let er rip
taking dead aim at the coast of miss-i-sip

causing death and devastation like no one had ever seen
and anger and frustration in the town of new orleans

and they blamed george bush
and they blamed the head of fema
they told everybody that would listen to em shout
they blamed the mayor
and they blamed governor blanco
cos nobody came to get their sorry asses out

when the levees didnt hold the water started coming up
and all at once they realized that they were out of luck
so they all took refuge in the superdome
it didnt take em long to make themselves right at home

well they stole t.v.s and they stole fine jewelry
everybody got a new pair of nike tennis shoes
stole guns, dvds, fur coats, cold beer
they stole some stuff that they couldnt even use

with the water and the sewer now deeper than their thighs
they started shooting helicopters bringing them supplies
then when the army had the nerve to fire back
the reverend jesse jackson said it was cos that they were black

and they crapped in the streets
they raped young women
they committed every kind of unthinkable sin
they did some things that you cant even mention
with the only intention to get on cnn

now the water went down and they all went home
now they sit around and they bitch and they moan
cos everything is worse than you could ever expect
and they wonder who the hell is gonna send them their next check

now they got no jobs
they got no money
but they got away cos they never got caught
they aint no better than they was fore the storm
and dont you know that everythings the governments fault

they stole t.v.s and they stole fine jewelry
everybody got a new pair of nike tennis shoes
stole guns, dvds, fur coats, cold beer
they stole some stuff they couldnt even use

they blamed george bush
and they blamed the head of fema
they told everybody that would listen to em shout
they blamed the mayor
and they blamed governor blanco
cos nobody came to get their sorry asses out
